Successful liver and kidneys transplant following aortic dissection and
subclavian artery rupture: A case report
AbstractDespite the increasing number of liver and kidney transplants, the
number of awaiting patients for a proper donor is still exceeding.
Therefore, the preservation of donor's organs is critically advocated.
Herein, we presented a successful liver and kidneys transplant from a

perforation site and dissection which culminate in lifesaving organ
